Co-founder, Backend Devloper

Dylan is, above all, adept in identifying and rapidly gaining proficiency in the technologies required to complete any task at hand. He has worked with computers since he was a teenager; he ran a small BBS (Bulletin Board System) from his basement before 'the internet' was popular and started using Linux when he was about 16. Dylan is self-taught with the exception of a few courses in computer programming including Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life, and Genetic Algorithms in College. He has experience in many programming languages, including (in order of familiarity): PHP, Javascript, Actionscript, Python, C++, Bash, Perl, LISP, etc. He has administered MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL Server databases and is proficient in SQL. Dylan graduated from Hampshire College in 2004 with a BA in a self- designed program in 'Ethnopharmacognosy' including Ethnobotany, Organic Chemistry, and Pharmacology. This program culminated in a Division III (thesis, in Hampshire's unique system) on pulque, an alcoholic but highly nutritious and culturally significant beverage created by fermenting the sap of large agaves known as magueyes. This work sought to understand the nutritional and cultural role of pulque in a small community in Central Mexico today through four months of independent field research followed by several months of trace elemental analysis on samples collected in Mexico to determine how much lead pulque leeches from the lead-glazed barrels it is often fermented in. This research was sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. In addition to Sweeping Design LLC, Dylan formed another company, Primaverity LLC, in 2005 to provide Wireless Networking services. Its clients include Clear Channel and Midwest Family Broadcasting, both of which contracted Primaverity to design and manage the installation of unlicensed point-to-point microwave links between their studios and the Department of Transportation. Primaverity was contracted to design a software system to manage the licensing of new microwave wireless links; the resulting specification for this system included workflows for automatically mapping and analyzing interference between proposed and existing licensed microwave links as well as managing the distribution of and receipt of objections to Prior Coordination Notices as mandated by the FCC.
